Make with Me

Calling all crafters, non crafters willing to have a go and social people! Help raise money for Mencap's wonderful work with people living with disabilities by Making and Baking things!

Mencap's latest newly launched campaign (just yesterday!) is 'Make with Me & 'Bake with Me'. The Make with Me website contains lots of ideas and inspiration to get crafty, host a fund raising crafty party or get together as well as free seasonal recipe and project cards that you can download.

I am very proud to let you know that I have designed one of these project cards for Mencap. I hope you enjoy making my 'United Gingerbread People Bunting' and using it to decorate a crafty party for Mencap. You will find the pattern template and step by step instructions on the Make with Me website.

The Make A Me appeal challenges everyone to make a 'Me', a personalised home made or baked creation, to show your support for the 1.5 million people with a learning disability in the UK. It's easy to take part: get inspired, Make a Me, and upload it into the ME gallery at Make with Me to raise awareness and much needed funds, for national disability week 20 - 26 June. Mencap need as many people as possible to hand make or bake a 'Me' and show their support.
